Haha central coast weathermen rarely get to be excited about anything. For them, this is like the Superbowl.

We're all going to die.

Houdini, my escape artist cat? I opened the door this morning and invited him to bail. He goes tearing towards the door/freedom got to the door sill and slammed on the brakes looking at the rain. I'm pretty sure the Chumash consider balking cat a sign of impending doom.

That's an interesting bit of history I did not know. Thanks.

In the end, the Condit Dam removal spurred the decision: to create

plugs at the bottom portion of the Matilija Dam and wait for a large rain event and then blow the plugs to smithereens, releasing water through uncontrolled orifices along with the 8 million cubic yards of silt, cobble and gravel trapped in the reservoir, as it was considered not only the most inexpensive plan, but also the plan that would have the least negative environmental impact.

The changes downstream will occur over time: new riverbeds will be formed, new habitats for fish and wildlife, and replenished beaches at Surfers Point and down coast. The river will return to its pre-1947 state, eventually.

If it sounds almost too easy, there is a small catch.

Were going to need a good flood to move all that sediment through the system, said Jenkin. And you know how our rainfall has been recently.


So is this it? Does the damn dam come down now?

EDIT: Upon closer reading I don't think they are ready yet. Bummer.

Those are boardhorses you kooks.

Rumor is there are hundreds of Rinse Kits caught in the pilings of the pier and the pier is going down.

Get a Dodger cap and grab a board bag. Flag down an ICE agent and turn yourself in. Follow the same directions I gave 20W in another thread.

Just look for the police helecopter hovering over the water. The missing bodies always get flushed out of the inland funzone and end up in the eddy at middles. You should be able to find it from there! LOL
